This event will mark the launch of CITP’s initiative on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and public policy. The initiative will examine a range of policy issues raised by artificial intelligence, including how to ensure the application of AI is fair and governable; the impact of AI on the economy and jobs; how AI will affect free expression and human rights; how to increase the diversity of the AI workforce; effects of AI on security and privacy; and so on. This launch event will include introductions to these policy areas from Princeton experts, and roundtable discussions on how to address them.
